These are the novels that first brought Matt Cohen to national attention. As with his Governor Generals Award-winning novel, Elizabeth and After, The Disinherited is a novel of love and the land and their impact on a family dynasty, of the gradual encroachment of the modern-day city and its developers, and of the familys struggle against the threat of disintegration.
